The most important thing you can do is speak to your vet as early as possible and follow their advice on providing nourishment for your cat. Using strong smelling or strong flavoured foods such as fish, chicken or prawns may help as cats appetites can get stimulated by smell. Small animals can go in to a critical condition in a short time from dehydrated.

How can i get my cat to eat? You might even give her some liquids like the water in canned tuna or some “gravy” from canned cat food, just to get some nutrition into her. In any case, you will need to take your cat to a veterinarian immediately, preferably one that is specialized in.
The cat may lose interest in food and water because she feels nauseated (lolling of the head above the water bowl is a classic sign of kidney failure — it seems that cats with the syndrome feel.
But here are the three most important points. Take your cat into a steamy bathroom or if you can, put saline drops in its nostrils. A cat that won’t eat can be a serious problem and it’s up to you to help your cat before that problem gets any worse.
Very cold or very warm foods will hurt her teeth if she’s got lesions, and soft food is easier to eat.
Try drenching their solid food with the juice from a tuna can. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored pedialyte. Use automated cat feeding bowls.
It is your vet that can be able to give you good advice and make your cats feel much better.
Adding liquid to his food may help, if you can get him to eat but not drink. Resume feeding a bland diet ( boiled boneless / skinless chicken and plain white rice) in small, frequent amounts. If your cat is not drinking, you can give him some water with a syringe (minus the needle) or an eyedropper, but it is almost impossible to get enough water into a cat this way.
